I need to take the FBAT test. Can anyone tell me what kind of test this is? I see some books I can order online, but they dont explain it to me what the test pertains to.

Hi Jen,

As the title states, it's a Basic ability inventory. That generally refers to having the skills the State of FL has determined necessary to be admitted to a training program. These skills are the minimum necessary to attend an academy in an entry level, pre-academy, capacity, screening potential for LE training, from what I understand. If you check with someone on PL that has already taken the exam, they can tell you basic info. I haven't seen a study guide for quite some time. Below is a link for a practice exam. The FDLE website can provide links to various companies providing tests and study guides. Your local community college or university may have a copy of a study guide.

Your welcome. From what I've seen, the study guides are very straight forward and somewhat easy to understand. Also, everyone I've spoken to has said that doing the study guide has been helpful.

Have a Great Day! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> -Npc:)

Thanks! the interview was very informative. I was given paperwork to fill out and return. I will try to take the test this morning after I get some sleep. If I do not pass te first time, I will get a study guide and re-take it again in the near future.

Hmm practice exam... I was just browsing and I did DL the study guide and practice test, It was.. I dunno non challenging. It was all about paying attention to details, knowing pre-algebra (at best) and comprehension. I have to take this 2 times next year if my application to the Reserve Academy is accepted. I hope I do as well on the NCJOSI as I did their practice exam (missed 10 of 100 questions)
However it was good in that it gave me a general idea as to what type of questions might be asked


No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. - Theodore Roosevelt (Jan. 1904)

I have taken the FBAT 4 times total. I barely passed it the first time i took it but eventually went back and tried to take it again and did a little bit better. In florida you can only take it 3 times per year. I was told its a peice of cake until i realized i was points away from the passing score. I think the state passing score is 70%. Although certian county's are different. A study guide can help and give you good examples of whats going to be on the test.
